18:15 - Presentation - Wordpress & UX: Building a Great User Experience on the World’s Most Popular CMS - Helena Hill, 49Digital (

What your client wants their website to look like isn’t necessarily what their users are
expecting to see. How can we align our client’s wishes with those of their customers? In this interactive presentation, Helena will explore the ‘What’ and ‘Why’ of UX and why, as Wordpress developers, designers and site administrators, we should be leading with a user-centric approach to our work.

We’ll cut through many of the UX related terms, enjoy looking at some examples of how not to design and show you some tools that will help you deliver a better product for your clients.

Helena is Managing Director and lead UX Consultant at 49digital Ltd, a user experience consultancy and website design agency based here in the North East. She has worked with a wide range of companies and organisations, project managing and designing innovative digital experiences and is a now a regular speaker on user experience design throughout the region.
